The winery’s 14,000 square feet of caves were designed and built by hand by Friedrich Gruber of Gutenstein Austria. The caves are finished with handmade Austrian brick recovered from sites in and around Vienna and showcases select works from the Halls’ art collection. Deep inside the caves resides a dazzling reception area for private tastings and entertaining. The room’s spectacular chandelier, designed by Donald Lipski and Jonquil LeMaster, is dressed in hundreds of Swarovski crystals. « less

My wife and I are Hall club members so we know this wine. This was our first visit to the Rutherford locations. A little had to find, and once you get there, fantastic views of the northern valley. The story behind the cave was great to hear and the tasting in the cave - with the chandelier was really cool.... More

Our group of 16 thoroughly enjoyed this experience. It was a casual, comfortable experience. Felt like we were in a friend's home, sampling their hospitable wines. Our guide was fine, the tour, entertaining and informative. Different from the Opus One tour, this seemed to be more of an art and grounds tour than a wine-making tour, which was a nice... More

Hall Rutherford is certainly an experience to have. The grounds and views are beautiful. The tasting room simply spectacular. It would be a dream to celebrate a special occasion in their dining room with the grand sparkling chandelier. The wines are good - the Katheryn Hall is the best and worth the price, in my mind. HOWEVER, the hospitality is... More

Hall was a real disappointment. If the rest of the trip felt just WOW this was very blah. They love their new building but I'm not sure that they care about their tasting room. One woman took care of six different tables. We waited 20 minutes between pours. Awful. It felt like the Walmart of wine tastings.

Thank you for your candid feedback. We are so sorry we didn't meet your expectations. There are some growing pains at our new facility in St. Helena, and this kind of constructive criticism is invaluable. We'd love to invite you for a complimentary tour and tasting at our Rutherford property , to hopefully change your mind about HALL and redeem... More

My wife and I have visited Hall Rutherford over 10 times and keep coming back, of course upon our first visit years ago we joined the wine club and actually ended up having our Wedding dinner in the cave. The cave is by far the best in the valley, we have met both Craig and Kathryn Hall and they seem... More

Fantastic view of the valley, interesting collection art, quiet atmosphere; what's not to like? The insincere hospitality and over priced wines. Their best wine was ........ Can't think of one. Believe me they don't need your money and they proved it with me and my friends.

From the magnificent drive up to the winery, to the scenic view looking out from the glass once inside, you know you are in a very special place. This is a small winery that distributes only 4 varieties of wine and sells the rest only to it's wine club and those who come to taste. Quite exclusive, but it can... More

was really interesting and informative. Wines served were good - especially the Kathryn Hall Cab which we tasted from the barrel. Worth it, but we bought some wine to avoid the $ 40 per person fee (but also because we liked it!)

Hall Rutherford is a beautiful place and I would recommend going here if you are in a mood for a nice tour and some good wine. The tour takes you through the property and concludes with a seated tasting in their barrel room/cave. Groups are small and intimate so make sure to call well in advance for an appointment. Also,...
